The Nomad, from Pressure Cult, is a traveler’s multi-tool. In its base form, this machined aluminum tool is easy to travel with and features a bottle opener and bit holder for standard hex bits (the triangular hole). There is a slot to store a 2″ hex bit (included) with o-ring retention.
Once the traveler reaches their destination, they can add a utility blade to the bottle opener end using the Allen wrench that stores on the tool itself. This addition turns the Nomad into a defensive cutting tool useful for reverse edge methodology. The tool can accept hooked or regular straight utility blades. Even if a blade can not be sourced, the Nomad works as a blunt striking tool.
The Nomad comes with a kydex pocket sheath that accepts both utility blade types. It also includes:
- 5 hawks bill razor blades
- Mini chem light
- 1/16th allen wrench
- 2 inch hex bit
I own an earlier version of the Nomad. Most of the places I travel are easy enough to carry more dedicated self-defense tools but I have come to like the Nomad even just for everyday or utility tasks. It is comfortable to hold in multiple grips, lightweight, and the pocket sheath makes it extremely easy to carry.
